Where to return to? Rural-urban interlinkages in times of internal and international labour migration


Thieme, S (2008). Where to return to? Rural-urban interlinkages in times of internal and international labour migration. In: Social Research Center. Kyrgyzstan today: policy briefs on civil society, migration, Islam and corruption. Bishkek, KG: Social Research Center, American University of Central Asia, 108-113.

Abstract

Economic and social activities of migrants transcend internal and international as well as rural and urban divides. Migration circuits are not bipolar but rather develop towards a multi-local network of family members putting into question “return” as an often assumed conclusion to a successful migration.
This briefi ng explores the multi-local migration patterns of Kyrgyzstan’s mobile population placing return in a wider context and providing recommendations how to facilitate circular migration and ties to places of origin and new places of work and living.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
